About this Episode

This episode is a continuation of Javascript Jabber 512, so head over there before tuning into this one! In this Part 2, the Jabberers and Dan Shappir discuss THE difference between Svelte vs. virtual DOM and React, the most noticeable pros and cons of React when a DOM’s around, and how “partial rendering” is changing the game. Per usual, Steve’s dad jokes are 100% funny.

_“This separation that the VDom creates between the representation of the UI and the actual UI is a really powerful one.”
